Sorry guys, I didn't want to search for a boat forum and sign up there just to get this info.
I'm sure there are plenty of people here too who will know.
Can anyone tell me what these pieces are called and where I can find them for online purchase (in inox please). The big one is approximately 5cm long.

Thanks heaps.
Happy Easter everybody!

Cheers

They are called Thimble's, I used to use them for eye splices in 3 or 4 strand line.

Why are you asking. I'm intrigued...

Thanks a lot.
I have them on my 2 hammocks and since the beach/ocean is right in front of my home with lot's of Maresia, they are corroding quickly, so I want to replace them.

Thimbles they are. Get stainless steel ones so they last. online or a hardware store may have them. boat chandlery would have them
